    I worked at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    401k contribution match is really good

    Cons

    people have a bad habit calling out when short staffed, AM's come in late setting the example for the staff to do the same, makes it hard to be productive before lunch

    Advice to Management

    hold people accountable on when they are supposed to come into work, cut down on these month long vacation approvals that don't allow other people off, or jam up our reporting cycles because we are understaffed and people start calling out sick because they get burnt out. makes the situation worse

    I worked at Invesco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is pretty competitive, not too many other choices in the financial services industry in Houston, maybe not as volatile as the oil and gas industry.

    Cons

    IT here used to be focused on delivering and supporting quality systems and building strategic relationships with key business leaders. We were good at this, and ultimately got taken for granted. Focus shifted to cost savings, "innovation" and other goofy IT trends like "Lean IT". Senior leadership in the company expected more leveraged solutions across the whole company to save money, without having the stones to mandate this to the business group leaders. They expected IT to magically make the business units agree to work together even though they had no real incentive to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on delivering and properly supporting quality IT solutions, than on whatever lame "hot trend" you read about in some magazine on your most recent flight to somewhere.

    Pros

    The people were nice.

    Cons

    Financial acumen of internal sales managers was slim to none. Most had just been at the company for a long time in ops and had no sales experience. They didn't seem to actively try and learn the products the desk was supposed to sell and more concerned about call metrics than productive sales calls.

    Advice to Management

    Make sales managers more accountable. They are doing enough to get by instead of trying to move the company/team forward.

    I worked at Invesco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a great culture at Invesco and a lot of support from the management team. This makes it easy to move up if you're hardworking and focused. There is a great work-life balance here so you're rarely taking anything home with you.

    Cons

    The Financial Services industry is heavily regulated so licensing is often required. The tests aren't difficult but studying is required to do well. I think pay is a bit below market but the benefits help make up for that.
